Marvel is getting into the holiday spirit this October with the all-star comic book event Avengers Halloween Special #1, an anthology of seasonal stories, including one by the Soska Sisters, featuring Captain America and the rest of the team, along with Daredevil, the Punisher, and the X-Men, and the brilliant cover art has just been unveiled.

This Halloween, the Avengers will shock readers with their spookiest stories and the most fearful tales! Iron Man and Captain America take on a journey for one of Howard Stark’s abandoned weapons…but what they find is different than any kind of horror that they’ve encountered…

With bonus stories featuring your favorite Marvel heroes, including Daredevil, Punisher, and the X-Men, AVENGERS HALLOWEEN SPECIAL brings together an epic team writers and artists to take your favorite characters on all-new frightful journeys, including acclaimed creators Gerry Duggan (Despicable Deadpool, Infinity Countdown, Infinity Wars), Robbie Thompson (Doctor Strange and the Sorcerer’s Supreme, Spider-Man/Deadpool), and Juanan Ramirez (Uncanny Avengers)! Plus, Canadian horror producers and screenwriters Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska (The Soska Sisters) (American Mary, See No Evil 2) and superstar writer Jay Baruchel (Goon, This is the End) make their Marvel Comics debut!

“It’s going to be a horror anthology with five frightful tales full of chills and thrills,” teased editor Jake Thomas. “The stories will showcase your favorite Marvel heroes through a funhouse mirror of the macabre, twisting their stories into terrifying tales sure to send shivers up your spine! The only thing scarier than reading this issue would be missing it!”

Don’t miss all the horror and thrills this October, written by Gerry Duggan, the Soska Sisters, Jay Baruchel, Robbie Thompson, and more; with art by Juanan Ramirez and more.
